GI Partners Acquires Life Sciences Asset in Boston’s Seaport Lab Cluster

GI Partners has acquired 451 D Street, a life science, data center and creative office asset in the Seaport lab cluster of Boston, MA.

Eastdil Secured represented seller Related Fund Management, which will retain a minority interest in the ownership of the property. Eastdil also placed debt financing for the new ownership group.

The 479,000-square-foot property represents a scaled, world class lab and data center facility located in one of the largest life science clusters in the US.  Park 9 has recently undergone two major phases of lab conversion that total over half of the building’s rentable area.

“The Seaport has become a bona fide life sciences innovation hub and 451 D exemplifies our focus on serving the needs of small and medium-sized lab tenants through Class A reusable buildouts,” said John Sheputis, managing director at GI Partners and head of acquisitions for GI Partners Real Estate.

Related Beal will continue to serve as the building’s property manager
